    unfortunately the silt got the best of me (and my V-Struggle) on the way to the playa. fortunately Tim, Abe, and Jeff(?) stuck with me in the desert heat and called in the very awesome adventure medics! while we were waiting, 3 medical providers (including Oliver) who were riding along stopped to help as well. after a long ride to the ER, Paul from Giant Loop was there to pick up the day's casualties and get us back for dinner (and found me a bed!). By the next morning Ken had my camp had been packed and arrangements had been made to take my gear to a safe place outside pdx (thanks Kyrie!) . Paul gave me a ride to the airport in Bend.

    so a broken ankle sucks (could have been worse) but the rally and the people that stepped up to help me were more than great. It's a long way from home to get hurt but I couldnt have been more fortunate with the people that were around to help. Thanks so very much to all of you and I hope to be back next year! special thanks to Paul, Harold, Kyrie and Ken IMG-1471.jpg

    You can't get more protection than that boot.

    Of course!!! It would be my pleasure.... I figure if I put it in the public domain it's free for all to have.
